Sex  Male

La Nef des Fous
The Ship of Fools
Das Narrenschiff
La Nave de Los Locos
Stultifera navis
Duration  70:00
Comments  Starting with the musical work and stage adaptation by Lancino, based on the "Ship of Fools" by Sebastian Brant, we offer a theatrical production lasting for about 75 minutes. It consists of a series of short musical pieces of 1 to 5 minutes, each related to an aphorism of this huge work and linked between themselves by a biting and vivid text, astonishingly contemporary. Declaimed by an actor, this work presented in its poetic and musical context, takes on a new dimension with this stage version. The imagination of the audience is all the more stimulated because the form offers a "flavorful" alternation between the text and the music, joining them sometimes.

Vanishing Point
Comments  Vanishing Point is scored for clarinet and two percussionists. The 5 steps of the work (grouped in 3 separate movements) draw the path of a personal fantasy. Each step, in its own way, follows a model in the shape of a spiral. Although it fascinates us and hypnotises us, the central point, point of desire, is never attained.
